The Vice Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 elections, Mr Peter Obi, has visited and donated N1 million to Rex Universorum Hospital, Mmiata-Anam.
Making the donation at the hospital premises, Obi recalled how his government built the Rex Universorum Hospital, Mmiata-Anam, the first in the entire local government.
Obi said that he was full of happiness each time he realized that the hospital had effectively stopped the people of that area from travelling to other parts of the state to receive medical attention.
Handing over the cheque of N1 million to the hospital management, through the hospital Administrator, Rev Sr Dr Sapientia Ameke, Obi said he was part of Anambra West.
‘This was where I started my developmental projects when I became the Governor. I know the history of Rex Universorum Hospital and the critical role it plays as the only hospital in Anambra West Local Government. I am proud of what Sr Ameke has achieved here with the little resources she has. I will continue to partner and support them for the benefit of this society,’ he said.
In appreciation of the gesture, Sr Ameke recalled how, before Obi’s administration built the hospital, pregnant women, often in labour, had to travel by boat outside the local government in order to receive medical attention. She said that Obi had always supported the hospital and thanked him for coming to their aid, praying God to bless him.
